Psalms

Chapter 26

1 A Psalm of David. Judge me, O HaShem, for I have walked in mine integrity, and I have trusted in HaShem without wavering.
2 Examine me, O HaShem, and try me; test my reins and my heart.
3 For Thy mercy is before mine eyes; and I have walked in Thy truth.
4 I have not sat with men of falsehood; neither will I go in with dissemblers.
5 I hate the gathering of evil doers, and will not sit with the wicked.
6 I will wash my hands in innocency; so will I compass Thine altar, O HaShem,
7 That I may make the voice of thanksgiving to be heard, and tell of all Thy wondrous works.
8 HaShem, I love the habitation of Thy house, and the place where Thy glory dwelleth.
9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with men of blood;
10 In whose hands is craftiness, and their right hand is full of bribes.
11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity; redeem me, and be gracious unto me.
12 My foot standeth in an even place; in the congregations will I bless HaShem.
